Am I just completely insane? I felt this rush (I don't how else to describe it) when I saw this link on how to construct your own sandals made from old tires. Maybe it's the slight amount of caffeine flowing in my bloodstream (I'm trying to cut it out completely), or maybe it's the craftsperson itching to get into some project. It has the pattern and a how-to. At the bottom is a really interesting letter by a guy who was growing up in Germany in the aftermath of WWII, and said that he and his friends made this kind of sandal because they couldn't buy real shoes. The Hollowtop website seems like a great resource and will have to explore it further.
